The Drama programmes benefit from extensive links with theatre practitioners and key Irish theatre companies, who use our spaces for performances and delivering practice-based workshops.Drama allows students to learn in a rigorous and stimulating environment where they are encouraged to develop essential skills as thinking creative practitioners.The University offers a comprehensive range of programmes in Irish in both part-time and full-time mode at a number of centres which serve a diverse constituency of students. The breadth of Irish language provision at Ulster and the practice amongst staff and students of the School of Irish Language and Literature of using Irish as a primary medium of communication reflects the University’s strong commitment to cultural and linguistic diversity within Northern Ireland.Magee’s proximity to the Donegal Gaeltacht enhances its attractiveness as a base for studying Irish and Irish society. Language courses organised by Irish Studies staff in the Donegal Gaeltacht are an ideal chance to spend time with native speakers and increase your fluency and awareness of Gaeltacht life and culture. Students can opt to carry out research for their final-year sociological dissertations in Irish-speaking social contexts, such as in the Gaeltacht.Ulster University is the largest provider of Irish at third level in Northern Ireland and you will find that students and staff on the Irish modules are only too willing to speak Irish with you at every opportunity.Students study 2 modules per year enhancing oral and written fluency in contemporary Irish, exploring the place of the language in areas of Irish society such as education, the media and the legal system, and examining the role of the Irish language in Irish concepts of identity.Taking Irish as a minor will allow you to develop core language skills in our Irish Language and Culture modules while affording you the opportunity to sample a range of genres from the Irish literary tradition in our Irish literature offerings. You will not only acquire communicative skills but you will learn important analytical techniques and the capacity to form coherent arguments in both spoken and written form. A minor in Irish comprises of two from the total of six modules you complete per year (students take three modules in total each semester). These draw on extensive staff expertise and internationally-recognised research.
